Life goes on -- whether you lose a loved one or a job, you have to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
Abraham says conflict (stuff we don't like or want) is what spurs us to do something different than what we are currently doing. I'm sure this is true because I have a tendency to stay where I am as long as I'm comfortable -- sometimes way past when I cease to be comfortable -- because what is familiar -- even if it's not so good -- feels safer than the unknown.
I'll miss the funny stuff going on at the flower shop. I'll miss some of the interesting folks I've met
|No, that's not a white rose, it' s lisianthus with pink bouvardia|
Flower shops are major gossip centers. They know who died. They know who is leaving what to who in their will and who has been disowned, too. They know who is cheating on their spouse and with whom. They always get the scoop on divorces, you know -- who got what, how well the wife will be set up for the rest of her life, that kind of vital information. They always get the scoop on who is filing
bankruptcy, which politician didn't pay his taxes, and why businesses close their doors.
I guess for some folks, a florist is like a beautician, you can tell them anything. You can tell them everything -- and many people do. I have never figured out why.
Deidre and I decided to take Seth out of day care and let him stay with me. He'd gotten where he didn't want to go to "school" again, so it was a battle every morning. It's the path of least resistance. He only has one more year before he'll go to kindergarten, (if he goes) (homeschooling seems more and more probable) so we're gonna spend it together, and keep that daycare money in the family till.
Life goes on. That's good. I'm happy and I feel relaxed for the first time in a long, long time.
I can live with this. :)
